Welding safety equipment is designed to withstand hazardous glare, sparks, spatter, and heat generated during welding to prevent injury to workers and avoid damage to equipment and surfaces. Welding helmets and goggles protect the head and eyes, and some even have auto-darkening lenses that adjust the level of glare protection to suit the welding task. Welding protective gear such as welding gloves, welding aprons, welding sleeves, and welding jackets protects the torso and limbs from burns. Welding protection equipment such as screens and booths keeps the welding area contained to prevent contamination of nearby areas. Welding blankets cover surfaces and equipment to protect them and minimize fire hazards.
